Hi readers – thank you so much for visiting Garden of Beauty regularly, and sharing the articles, commenting and providing the feedback I do so love – all of it is deeply appreciated. :)
I wanted to let you all know that I’m hitting a really rough, busy time in my life right now – so busy that I’ve had to consider shutting down my blog. While I’ve always wanted to write about natural beauty, I initially started this blog to get my name out there for commercial writing work in the niche. It’s done that, but now I don’t have the time to write professionally anymore – so Garden of Beauty’s become a hobby instead. And has taken an unfortunate backseat.
The idea of shutting this down is painful. I don’t want to do that – I have so much to share! Researching and writing about natural beauty’s a lot of fun, and whatever I learn is passed down to you. Instead of completely shutting down, I’ve decided a short break is in order to get my life back on track and my priorities in order. This may take up to a week or maybe more, but I didn’t want to completely vanish without explaining why.
I have lots of drafted articles I can’t wait to write up, but time simply won’t allow me to. There isn’t enough of me to go around, and not enough time in a day to spare. My energy’s drained and I end up sleeping at odd times because I can’t find the time otherwise. It’s pretty brutal.
So, I’ll be back in a bit, and until then you can read some older content I have on here, visit the Resources link above for more info, or the recommended natural beauty blog links over to the right sidebar.
Coming in May, I hope to host another giveaway (or two), some articles with DIY recipes, more reviews, and of course, useful articles educating you on the benefits of going eco with your beauty.
See you then, and again, thank you all for contributing to the steady growth of Garden of Beauty, and your unwavering support. :)
